Quilts of Valor - make a block!
About the Quilts of Valor Foundation: The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL those service- members and veterans touched by war with Wartime Quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVs). This foundation is not about politics. It's about people.
I received the following from Carol Olsen the Region 2 Coordinator for Washington & Oregon:
“I'm sending a massive email to every quilter I know! I have had a request for 105 quilts for returning reservists who will be attending a Returning Warriors weekend in July. This is a huge amount of quilts that need to be created, assembled and delivered.”
If you don't have enough time to make a complete top or quilt, how about making one block? Please use red, white, and blue -- or come combination of the them, and make the block 12" finished size (12 1/2 with seam allowance). Mail to Carol at:
8717 Potlatch Ave NE
Bainbridge Is., WA 98110
Thank you so much for supporting our troops!
